5. Do I have to change my breast implants every 10 years?
Breast implants do not have to be changed every 10 years. You are free to keep a breast implant until you are unhappy with the shape of the breast, the implant ruptures or you have some problem with the implant. Implants carry a lifetime warranty. For the first 10 years the implant companies are so confident in their implants that they will even pay part of the surgeon’s replacement fees if an implant deflates. Patients should expect to change their implants at some point during their life. Usually patients elect to change their implants because they become unhappy with the shape. As a breast ages it typically loses natural tissue and droops leading to the desire to get a repeat augmentation.
